Top Tips for raising awareness
How can I raise awareness of literacy?
We cannot emphasise strongly enough that literacy is neither an issue just for the educational sector, nor a problem to be solved by policy-makers alone. All players in society can benefit from actions that help prevent and reduce illiteracy. It also means that the responsibility to act does not only rest with governments.
A broad range of individuals and organisations in European countries and at EU level are in a position to develop initiatives and implement policies to stimulate literacy development. We see these as opportunities for intervention. They can either function as stand-alone policies with individual and organisational benefits, or they can be multiplying factors strengthening existing governmental literacy policy.
